Bill Bellamy is about to give Entourage a run for its money! The actor is joining forces with Vivica A. Fox, Rick Fox, Keshia Knight Pulliam and Tim Meadows for a new sitcom, Mr. Box Office, to debut this fall.


The series centers on actor Marcus Jackson (Bellamy), one of the biggest movie stars in the world who, after pushing a paparazzo, finds himself having to put his film career on hold, while relegated to a long-term community service stint teaching underprivileged high school kids in South Central. Rick Fox will play a physical education teacher at the school while Vivica A. Fox will play a "cougar" history teacher.


The pilot for Mr. Box Office has already begun shooting with a 104-episode order in place, ensuring the series will remain on the air for quite some time. Deadline.com reports the show will likely air on the CW network.
